Re: Porteus-v3.2rc5 bug reports

I thought it was me but sometimes it switches keyboard back to English US when I've changed it under Porteus Settings Centre >> Keyboard Settings to English UK. I've even got config Cheat Code kmap=gb for it. One reboot it fine but random time it switches. :(

Re: Porteus-v3.2rc5 bug reports

update-flash doesn't work with latest Opera from update-opera. newer Opera is built on Chromium with the Blink engine, so needs the pepperflash plugin from google-chrome.. update-flash only provides flash for mozzilla based browsers... brokenman may consider writing an update-pepperflash at some po...

Re: Porteus-v3.2rc5 bug reports

I don't know if this related to what was already reported but update-flash doesn't work with latest Opera from update-opera. I ran root and had Firewall off for it to download. Opera just doesn't see it even if I restart it after.

Re: Installing tar.xz Packages Correctly

Made script xz2txz.sh which will make Slackware compliant package: http://forum.porteus.org/viewtopic.php?f=39&t=4577#p33210. Might get funny name, name fixing next on agenda. But suitable then for conversion txz2xzm . Might help to get it on the menu. Let us know if it works. Well, I've tried it o...

Re: Installing tar.xz Packages Correctly

So tar.xz are actually longer name of txz, just been browsing around. I've converted it successfully but doesn't add to Whisker menu. So, I'm guessing it supposed to work as portable executables.

Thanks for you helps guys.

Re: Porteus-v3.2rc5 bug reports

I found this by accident just now. If you have root Thunar open and viewing USM folder, then run USM in root Terminal. While packages are being processed for dependencies or when they converting to modules, closing Thunar closes Terminal like it they linked part of same application. Also, this happe...

Re: Installing tar.xz Packages Correctly

I got it from here: https://desktop.telegram.org I know there's a module on forums and USM but I thought getting it from their site directly would be better and secure. I browsed around before and saw they done the same with VLC Media Player on another site with tar.xz but because Porteus uses a dif...

Installing tar.xz Packages Correctly

When I double-click a tar.xz file I've downloaded, there are no applications to open it. However, on Porteus 3.1, there was Xarchiver pre-installed. Even though the application wasn't assigned to open them, I managed to extract the contents with Xarchiver into a folder and run them in that folder as...

Re: Porteus-v3.2rc5 bug reports

I've tested Asunder CD Ripper, although I've no CD Drive for my device. It doesn't crash or freeze for any of the menus for me. But thought it ideal to test what happens without the drive. Sorry, I forgot to test that before. Earlier today. When it shows terminal booting Porteus around the login tex...

Re: Porteus-v3.2rc5 bug reports

I just used update-opera. Seems stable after converting it to xzm. Took a while for the package to build in Terminal though before converting it after. Quick installing from txz package makes a duplicate icon in Whisker menu but seems fine in xzm format. Thanks. :) I don't know why USM only has up t...

Re: How do include changes into a save.dat file?

I'm absolutely positive because I set up encryption and when Porteus booted, it asked me for the pass phrase. That doesn't happen on my original config. I do see that you are using different reference points in the porteus.cfg file vs the actual file location. I'll change that and see what happens....

Re: How do include changes into a save.dat file?

I've been using Porteus for a month or so. I've made updates such as latest version of Firefox, downloaded modules like VLC, etc. All this was done without a save.dat file in use. I created a save.dat file and edited the porteus.cfg file to include it. When Porteus starts up using the save.dat file...

I used this in the terminal and it updated everything in seconds. rsync --progress --modify-window=1 --update --delete --recursive --times "/mnt/sdb1/source folder/" "/mnt/sdc/destination folder/" Although grsync which I was using was the overall problem.

Sync 2 Folders

Is there a module GUI application or a terminal command to sync 2 folders of their content to match the first one? I tend to do a lot of file managing (renaming, moving, adding and deleting) while keeping one as a backup on another device. I'm asking since it's difficult having 2 Thunar tabs/windows...
